FEATHERED NEST FRIDAY


Love this old wreath and all it's crinkly texture.
It was a pretty purple statice and bay leaf wreath that
faded and weathered outside


Set on an old chipping door
with a wee starfish...
its perfect.
I am loving the faded old look of it.

  15. Courtney,
    That wreath is great in every season. When recently on vacation, every shop I went in, that sold shells, were almost sold out of those white finger starfish. It looks great on your wreath. So many great links this week. Off to visit, thanks for having us!
